Abstract: The article deals with the traditional 'Hadd in-Nies', People's Sunday, celebration at Zabbar. It takes place every year during the first Sunday of Lent. This tradition dates back before the Order of St John came to Malta in 1530. The locality of Zabbar has been associated with the devotion to Our Lady of Graces since the late Middle Ages. Major changes were introduced to Hadd in-Nies in 1970, when the parish priest introduced a defile of floats depicting Marian subjects. Since 2016, the parish has been granted permission to continue carrying the titular statue shoulder high during the pilgrimage.
